A week ago Les Miles backed into a win over Tennessee despite horrible clock management at the end of the game. While those issues cannot be overlooked, Miles redeemed himself with a gutsy call that helped his team beat Florida. Down by three and needing a 53-yard field goal to tie it, Miles called for a fake field goal that gave his team the first down. Check out the play in case you missed it:
There was a near five-minute delay to review the play and see if the over-the-shoulder toss was a forward pass, but it was ruled to be a clean lateral. Four plays later, the Tigers threw a touchdown pass to take the lead and they hung on for a 33-29 victory. LSU somehow is now 6-0 while Florida drops to 4-2.
Miraculously, Les Miles is heading one of the few remaining undefeated teams in the country. As incredible as the comeback was, as long as it comes at the expense of the Gators I’ll take it. And the riverboat gambler lives again.
